Now, as for my day, it has been rather up and down for me today. This morning I happened to read a blog entry written by Bristol Palin. I have to say that I was completely outraged just reading it. She pretty much is saying that the president is wrong to believe in gay marriage. And she continues on with saying that it is "well known" that children of female/male homes grow up "better"....ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME?! I just want to slap the living hell out of her ignorant self and tell her that she will die and go to hell for thinking such things.
This is a picture of what she wrote...as you can see I highlighted the part that pissed me off the most. There were many comments on her facebook page praising her for standing up to this "abomination" of marriage. And these people are ones who sit there and say all this crap about God and the Bible and what the fuck ever.....honestly, I think they are the most ignorant people I've seen on facebook in a looooong time. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE should have the right to marry whoever they choose and have the same rights as everyone else. I really want to punch this girl in the mouth for even talking out like this and just smack all the people who agree with her.
Marriage has been a "man and woman" for 1,000s of years and why change it? Umm because we're not as ignorant as we used to me. God made gay people just like he made black people or people that are different. He made them to teach tolerance and acceptance. People fear the unknown, reason why they turn to the Bible and say "well, the Lord says this is wrong" blah blah blah. God doesn't run our country, WE as humans do and we should look at every person just as that, a HUMAN!!
I really don't understand why people have a problem with gay marriage? I mean, seriously, how does it affect you? So your kids have friends with 2 fathers or 2 mothers. So what?? They aren't any different then you and your partner. They are loving parents trying to be just that, parents. Living in love and just trying to make life work...just like the rest of us.
Alright, that's enough of that.
My next big thing today was that before I went to lunch with my family and all my man's family, I gave my mother a call to wish her happy mothers day. Well, she told me that my brother and nephew were out at the house visiting, which was great, until she told me the news. My brother and sister-in-law are getting a divorce. I want to say that I'm shocked, but to be honest, it's not really all that surprising. To respect my brother, I won't go into details as to WHY they are divorcing, but I feel terrible for him.
Even earlier today he changed his relationship status on facebook from Married to Single. Really sad.
Anyway, that was my mothers day. The best part about today was that I got an hour and a half nap. Something that NEVER happens! So I was thankful for that.
Oh, and I posted the article from Bristol on my facebook page if anyone is interested in reading the whole ignorant thing.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!
